Fifteen women from ATLAS programs attended the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing con- ference, known as the world’s largest gathering of techni- cal women, from Nov. 9-12, 2011, in Portland, Ore.
The conference included presentations from industrial, governmental and academic fields. Special sessions focused on the role of women in computer science, information technology, research and engineering.
Several ATLAS graduate students presented their research. Above, ATLAS Direc- tor John Bennett and ATLAS Ph.D. student Leslie Dodson stand in front of a poster about Dodson’s research, which focuses on Information and Communication Technology for Development. ATLAS also had a booth promoting the various academic opportunities available through the institute.
The ATLAS Institute once again served as a Gold Sponsor of the conference.
